The Island: Gran Canaria, the ‘round island’ has an almost circular perimeter, and with the highest summit in the middle of the island, it gives it a cone-like shape, which gives place to lots of deep ravines and mountainous terrain.

The weather is also as varied as its terrain. The temperatures are pleasant and mild throughout the year, but depending on orientation or altitude, different microclimates can exist.
This diversity is what creates the changing landscape of Gran Canaria, and it is what has given it its nick-name of the ‘miniature continent’.

With an extensive network of established hiking trails, Gran Canaria is an ideal hiking holiday destination for trekkers.
